Expedition Vehicles and Overland Trucks
The trucks used by Absolut Tours & Safaris are mainly expedition vehicles, specifically designed for African roads and terrains.
Through our many years of experience in this area, we customise each vehicle in our workshop to ensure that our clients experience maximum comfort during their journey. Of particular importance to us is that every vehicle have large windows to ensure an expansive view from every seat. In addition, the vehicles are fitted with modern and comfortable seats, as one is accustomed to in Europe. Naturally, each vehicle is fitted with an on-board kitchen, including fridge, air-conditioning, and ample dust-free storage space.
Our trucks are all inspected for compliance with the highest possible standards set by the South African board of road-worthiness and vehicle safety. Every vehicle is routinely checked to ensure it is up to standard with environment and safety certificate prerequisites.
We mainly use our trucks on some of our Namibian routes.
We have a large fleet of IVECO minibuses, built to the high standards of Absolut design. These small buses carry 15 passengers in comfort, with air-conditioning, opening windows, and a luggage trailer.
These vehicles are mainly used in South Africa where the road conditions are of good quality.
It’s becoming more and more popular to travel the world on a bicycle. It’s a lot easier to slow down, breathe, and immerse yourself in a foreign country in a more active and fulfilling way. We have Kalkhoff Trekking bicycles in our fleet, which can be used either as the only mode of transport or just for a few parts of the journey.
Southern Africa, and especially South Africa has incredible scenic roads that make every biker’s heart beat faster! Our fleet therefore also consist of BMW F800GS motorbikes for an epic adventure.
